The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

by Mark Twain

Analysis: Genre

Adventure

The adventure label is pretty self-explanatory. It's right there in the title. Tom and his pals run away from home, hunt down a murderer, search for treasure, and find it. And though some bad things happen – namely murder – the killer is brought to justice, Tom gets the girl, and he and Huck live happily ever after thanks to their loot.
